Jackie Ryan

These archival printed images are produced on museum-grade canvas over stretchers and are derived from scenes in the issues of Burger Force, an Aurealis Award-winning comic book series about an undercover pop-culture detective agency that operates out of a fast food restaurant. The comic features heavily modified photographs of performers from the Australian stage and screen, set against striking examples of Brisbane architecture.

Burger Force comics have been featured at the Brisbane Writers Festival (2012 and 2013), the Emerging Writers Festival Melbourne (2012), Stan Lee’s Comikaze Expo in Los Angeles (2012), Pecha Kucha (2011), and the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco (2011). The Burger Force website has been archived by the National Library of Australia as a site of cultural significance.
